Pride in the law 

Imogen Hamblin, a member of our LGBT+ Lawyer's division, features in the Gazette's My Legal Life column. This is one of a number of articles from LGBT+ solicitors being published in response to the finding, in our Pride in the Law report, that a lack of LGBT+ role models is one of the most pressing issues for LGBT+ solicitors.

London Legal Walk 

The London Legal Walk, which we sponsor, is taking place again this year on Monday 18th October, reports Legal Action Group. The money raised from the walk will help to fund frontline free legal advice agencies in London and the South East. 

"I look forward to seeing you all at the London Legal Walk on 18 October. For the first time in over two years, the whole of the legal profession will be able to walk together (albeit maintaining a bit of distance) to raise funds for free legal advice charities," said Law Society president I. Stephanie Boyce.
